Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. One of only two examples graded at this level by SGC with none higher! While Dick Buckley (#49-4 pose) is a relatively common player in the Old Judge series, this is a far rarer and more significant example than is apparent at a glance. This is an 1890 Old Judge! All 1890 Old Judges are exceedingly rare, and this is a particularly significant card. The "C., New Yorks, NL" designation, which is so unusual, is found only on his almost impossibly rare 1890 Old Judge card. All 1890 Old Judges are rare, and almost all suffer from very poor contrast. The contrast on this example is far better than that of most 1890 Old Judge cards. The card is centered to the right, with light corner wear, and a perfectly clean reverse. An outstanding and extremely rare 1890 N172 example worthy of any advanced N172 or nineteenth-century card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
